Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Frugal Jam Sweetened Quick Bread, Festive Jam Loaf
Festive Jam Loaf

This is the freshest time of year! Not a kitchen I know of is not in the middle of something delicious and seasonal. One of my favorite summertime activities is jam making. I can never have enough, it is great to have on hand for eating and enjoying, as well as a gift to say "thank you" to a friend that offered a helping hand.

This easy loaf is tasty, as well as a great way to use up last year's jam. You can also drop the mixture into muffin cups for a handy personal size treat to eat out of hand.

 I chose a jar of fig and orange jam, I added cinnamon to the flour mixture and stirred in 1/2 c walnuts at the end.

Festive Jam Loaf

adapted from: Seasonal Ontario Food
350-degree oven
1 c jam
1/3 c oil
2 eggs

1 c flour
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour - I prefer Spelt flour
3 t baking powder
3/4 t salt

3/4 c milk

optional ingredients:  chopped nuts, diced dried fruit, chopped apples, cinnamon, the only limits would be your own preferences.

Stir together until mixed well jam, oil, and eggs. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt, whisk to combine. Add the jam mixture and 1/2 of the milk, mix well to combine. Add remaining milk, mixing until combined and no streaks of any one ingredient remain.

Bake 40 - 50 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes then turn the loaf out to cool completely.

Makes 1 loaf, 12 - 15 slices.

Remember quick bread once cool and sliced, will toast up just like yeast bread.
